Need help planning Grand Canyon Trip in August

Jump to last reply

We are 2 couples in our 60's who are planning a Grand Canyon trip mid August. We are all in good physical shape, but do not want to do really strenuous hiking.

Originally, we were going to go on the train, but after reading posts, we have nixed that idea. We are flying in and out of Las Vegas and have approx. 8 or 9 days including overnite in Las Vegas as we are flying from Boston and back. Our thought is to go to Grand Canyon South rim, Zion and Bryce. We also thought about Lake Powell but not sure we have enough time. We are confused as to how many days to stay at each place the best order and the best route to get back to LV at the end.

We do have tentative reservations inside South rim (Kachina Lodge), Brice and Zion inside parks, but no sure how many nites to stay at each place and if we have the reservations in the correct order. I would really appreciate any input, travel tips and suggestions.
